About Awards

Delhi Residents, let the whole country know about your efforts and what delhi as a city really stands for: compassion!! In 2020-2021, with the ongoing pandemic we all witnessed a terrible migrant labor crisis. The need for a critical intervention from civil society was more than ever before. Based on this realization, IGSSS along with URJA started engagement initiative with RWAs through activities like Urban Farming and Solid Waste Management, where in the idea of inclusion of support staff in generating employment was promoted and highlighted. Through these activities RWAs were encouraged to engage with their support staff in their respective areas and do their bit during the hours of crisis. All these efforts were later amplified through an innovative public digital campaign. Based on this backdrop, The Residents Award 2020 is an effort to recognize RWAs and residents in the efforts towards a better and more compassionate society. Nomination are open from Residents and RWAs of Delhi NCR in the form of stories and testimonies of them helping their support staff.
